Brexit: What's happening and what comes next?


It's been a hectic year in slotxo news, with the coronavirus pandemic and the US presidential
election dominating the headlines.

Brexit deadlines have come and gone, but now it's fair to say crunch time is fast approaching for
the UK's departure from the European Union.

So, given everything that's been going on, it feels like a good time to catch up on where we are.

Remind me - what's the current situation?
The UK actually left the EU on 31 January, but it's continuing to follow the bloc's rules until
the end of the year.

These extra 11 months of transition were designed to give both sides some breathing room to
negotiate a post-Brexit deal.

Such a deal would shape the UK's future relationship with its European neighbours,
with key areas such as trade and immigration all under discussion.

Got it. So how are the talks going?
Well, they've ground to something of a standstill.

Negotiations got under way in March, but progress has been fitful. Over the summer,
the EU's top negotiator Michel Barnier said a deal seemed unlikely, while the UK said it was
not afraid to walk away from the negotiating table all together.

Not exactly positive then.

The main sticking points have been fishing - namely how much access EU boats should have
to UK waters - and state aid. The latter dispute revolves around whether the UK government
should be allowed to subsidise failing companies, something that's generally not allowed
under EU rules.
